            Nice hotel near the klong dao beach”

            This place is highly recommended. First of all, the location is so good. 5 minutes walk to Klong Dao beach, Seven Eleven is the 1-minute walk. Staff is so friendly and helpful. You can book transfer, tours here with a much better price. You booked the garden view room. The room is so much better compared to what we paid. Room is big, bed is big and comfortable. We also had an extra small bed, it may be for a kid.

            Great accommodation!”

            I was super-happy with my stay at Smile Place. We stayed in a beautiful big and modern room on the top floor. There was a very big wardrobe and other good storage places. The double bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was very clean and spacious and just amazing, compared to other bathrooms in Thailand, with a lovely separeted showering area. The hotel manager was very friendly and helpful, also the cleaner who did a very good job with cleaning the room. A big plus for the fridge in the room and for the water boiler and coffee supplies. The location (although it's not on a beach) worked very well for us. We ended up staying at Smile Place for 12 nights. I definately recommend Smile Place. Exellent value for money.

            This place is amazing. The best value hotel i've EVER stayed in my life. The rooms are modern and well designed, pretty much all of them have amazing views - easy to get a bike, and its located next to in my opinion one of the best best beaches in Lanta - Khlong Dao. Could not recommend this hotel any more!

            Very good hotel.”

            This place have 3 stars, but for so lower price per 3 nights was relly really good. Room was every day clean, new towels. Hotel is only 3minutes from beach and close to street where are many restaurants and shops. Staff was very friendly. Hotel also offer scooter for good price. We rented it and checked whole Lanta island. There is amazing place in south with lighthouse middle of national park and aslo old town is good to see. We recommanded this hotel.

            I had the most incredible time in Koh Lanta thanks to this place and its amazing staff. Was upgraded to the mountain view room upon arrival - a beautiful room with a large balcony. Rented a scooter and booked my transfer to Koh Phi Phi in the reception which was very easy and convenient! The staff are so cheerful and always willing to help, really can't recommend this place enough.

            We loved it at smile! The bungalow we had was very spacious and comfortable, the shower was nice and warm, everything was really clean and we had a fridge/kettle as well. There’s a cat wandering around that came and said hello every morning and night and sat with us too. If we’re ever back in Koh lanta we will definitely be staying at smile again :-)

            Great value for money ”

            This place is great for the price. I stayed in 2 different rooms. 1st (purple door) was a superior upstairs. No view and a smelt a little bit like mould/mildew. Furniture a bit worn but useable and it was clean, as per photos and had everything you needed. Hot shower good pressure, fridge, a.c., Wi-Fi and a smart tv. Bed was ok pillows a little hard. Staff were friendly and helpful. Booked trips etc through them all well priced. 5 mins walk to beach, many places to eat nearby and a 7-11 etc. 2nd room was more modern- basic garden bungalow more powerful a.c. but t.v. was not set up with Wi-Fi as in previous room. A little noisier than prevuous room as you could hear the other guests and I guess I had Bigfoot nextdoor stomping around making the whole room shake all night. Highly recommend this place i would have happily stayed longer. Great massage downstairs too. 15% discount available and the staff are well trained and knowledgeable.

            Great value!”

            This is a great value and by far our favorite area on Ko Lanta. We stayed at two other places and definitely enjoyed here the most. WiFi was strong, staff was extremely helpful and the beach is just a short walk away with a lot of restaurants in the area to choose from. Also got discounted massages for staying here. We got two and the first massage was definitely better than the second (so kind of inconsistent). There isn’t much to the room but was more than we needed!

            I would give 100 stars if I could”

            Everything I could have asked for a hotel and resort they have it complete. Everything. Walking 400m to the beach. 200m to 7-11. The only drawbacks is the mosquitos. Apparently I have checked with other guest in the next hotel. They are experiencing same problem or worse. Other than that it was a perfect getaway Id recommend it to anyone who wants to relax at ko lanta

            Enjoyed staying here, the room is large and good value for money! Location is good and very close to the beach but would still recommend hiring a motorbike to get around as Koh Lanta is large and restaurants/bars very spread out. The only issues we had were a few things broken in the bathroom. Wifi here was also good!

            Staff was very friendly and was always smiling. Booked a mountain view room and it was good. Very clean but the bathroom has an open window that you cannot close. So a bit of advice is to keep your bathroom door closed at all times or else bugs will get in. There was one cockroach that flew into the bathroom during a storm. Other than that, very close to the beach, clean rooms, and friendly staff.

            Couple bagpacking. Clean large room close to the beach. Great air conditioning and shower/ dressing rooms. Close to 7/11 and the beach. We intended on staying two days and my partner got unwell. When explained to the reception they allowed us book for another night at the same price. Massages available on ground floor. Bakery down the road for coffee and some restaurants on the way to the beach. Facility down to the road which allows you book transport to other islands. We booked a direct bus and ferry to Koh Samui for 750B per person, it was great as it cut out the transportation to the pier like other services. Close to Saladan Pier and it’s night markets. Basic hotel in a great location! No frills attached

            Amazing place. Vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés !”

            Advantages : Room super clean. Huge room. Balcony with view on the mountains (arround 10m2). Smart TV Samsung connected to internet with Netflix! This is maybe a detail but after a long day during a long travel this is super nice to be able to watch a good movie or serie. Internet super fast. Aircon super efficient and quiet. 2mn from 7/11 (really convenient) Less than 5 minutes from the beach. Team friendly. They propose also massages, rent scooter and travel agency. Negative points : I really don't find for this hotel. Just shame that during the low season nobody clean the beaches of this beautiful island. . Most of the ones we seen are dirty.

Nice beach 2 mins walk away, 7-11 metres away and a nice coffee place with actual coffee in front of the 7-11... Summarising, perfection considering the price.

            Above average”

            We booked 3 nights at Smile Place, but didn't actually stay there due to multiple problems with our room. Upon check in, we were told that the AC in our room was broken. So the staff put us in another hotel down the street for one night and told us to move to Smile Place the next day. On Day 2, we moved out of the other hotel and checked in to Smile Place. Shortly after we checked into our room, the water completely stopped working. We waited 2+ hours for the problem to be fixed, but by 11pm there was still no water. So the staff moved us back to the other hotel that we had stayed at the night before. We stayed there for our remaining 2 nights in Ko Lanta. From the little time we spent in Smile Place, the room seemed okay; it was large and clean. But we had booked the ground floor apartment, which we had thought was a garden bungalow according to the photos. But they gave us a room on the upper floor. So be aware that you might not get the room you booked.

            Beds are soft and they come clean your room everyday. Nothing was ever missing You can rent a scooter and find anything with them. Very helpful staff. Stay and explore the whole island it’s a great place to just chill out and enjoy the scenery/people. You will need the scooter to do so. Right next to 7/11. 10 minute walk to the beach.
